Bacopa Monniera May Help Lower Blood Pressure
- Jan 08, 2021 -

Hypertension is a serious health problem because it makes your heart and blood vessels tense.This weakens your heart and increases risk of heart disease.

Studies have shown that bacopa monniera may help to keep blood pressure in a healthy range.

In an animal study, bacopa monniera reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels. It achieves this by releasing nitric oxide, which helps dilate blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.

Other study showed that bacopa monniera significantly lowered blood pressure levels in rats with elevated blood pressure, but did not affect rats with normal blood pressure.

However, a 12-week study of 54 healthy older adults found that taking 300 mg of bacopa monniera daily had no effect on blood pressure levels.

According to the results of the current study, bacopa monniera may lower blood pressure in hypertensive animals. however, more human studies are needed to confirm these effects.
